On the basis of their vigorous display in their semi-final triumph over Aberdeen, Motherwell are likely to offer more resistance on May 19 than a Rangers team which manager Graeme Murty described as "passive".

Nobody likes getting one over the Gers as much as the man Celtic fans refer to as "Broony".

"In the first-half, we were very dominant and in control, so I'm very pleased".

Murty said: "This is the worst I've felt in my career, without a doubt".

"We didn't do enough to make them want to stay at the stadium today".

'Its a lonely place standing on the sidelines when that's going on.

Celtic are by far and away the best team in Scotland, they have been for the last eight or nine years now, you probably wouldn't be far off the mark if you said that the disappointment of losing far outweighs the joy of winning for them.

'There's lots of things to look at, ' Murty admitted. We didn't put them under enough pressure and allowed them to play through us too easily. I think it would be churlish and selfish to talk about my own situation'. I don't know why. We are in the final now and that won't be an easy game, either, that is a totally different game again with their physicality.

"Everyone will tell you it's one game at a time but we are well aware now that there is a possibility for that and we are going to give it everything we have between now and the end of the season to get that". In the first half we played well, scored two very good goals and had good composure.

"I never become complacent", he said. We knew as soon as we got the ball down on a half-decent pitch, with the speed we move the ball, Rangers didn't know how to adapt and deal with it.

"There was anger, frustration, all the sorts of emotion you would expect from a changing room that has just gone through that", he said.
